We’ve had similar problems with people on those e-bikes out here:stopping in the middle of paths, riding 2 or 3 abreast, going too fast for the conditions, not yielding the right of way. It seems like the typical rider is somebody who hasn’t been on any sort of bike in 25 years and has forgotten all common courtesy. Most of the cities and trails/parks authorities here now have signs on the paths and multiuse trails explicitly forbidding e-bikes.Stomach was a bit off so didn't do as long a ride as I planned. Got 17 miles in though which is my longest since I returned to riding about three weeks ago. If not for the stomach I'm sure it could have been 25 with no stress.
Hit a part of the multi-use path that goes through a development for the retired crowd and found a new hell: late stage boomers with Pedego type E-bikes. Came around a restricted vision curve to find a dozen Boomers completely blocking the path and all having a chat and sip of water. I came to a skidding halt and had a friendly chat that possibly blocking the entire path, exiting a limited vision curve, was not the best plan for a break stop. They all seemed amazed other people might exist in the world but agreed that possibly getting off the path would be safer for them as they might get hurt in a collision.
